vote and white vote it was an absolute split between barack obama and mitt romney. but because of latinos, because of asian, and because of other nationalities, barack obama carried the state. and that-- david's point is a point well taken. it's a changing american electorate. it fell to 72% white, the electorate, still whiter than is the nation as a whole because of participation, but i think the change-- this was the last election that the republicans had a chance. i mean, we can argue whether it was voter oppression, but it was certainly made more difficult to vote if you weren't a white anglo-saxon protestant native born, and i think this was the last gasp of that constituency, and at the same time, judy, one other quick thing, and that is there's a terrible temptation on the part of the press after an election, if you win, you're a genius with an i.q. north of 300. if you lose, you're somehow a dullard who probably isn't able to tie your own shoes. the romney campaign didn't dseveral things right. the obama campaign did several things wrong. the obama campaign did more thi
